by-author vs. by-module URLs in debian/watch
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
During the hacking of versioncheck.pl. I noticed that debian/watch files
of our packages contain by-author and by-module CPAN directories in a
I think, we should stick with by-module usage.
Why: because otherwise uscan would miss when newer version is available
from different author.
Wny not: by-module directories are usually longer. This would increase
the load on CPAN mirrors (slightly) and the DEHS machine (more
important, I guess). The versioncheck.pl's performance would not be
affected by the change (same for alioth).
I can make the change group-wide, although, I prefer to do this with
group agreement. :)
What do you think?
